Estevan Bruins score 10 in rout over Melville

The Estevan Bruins had their highest single-game goal total in nearly four years in a 10-2 victory over the Melville Millionaires on Wednesday night in Melville.

Ironically, the Millionaires opened the scoring when Aidan Steinke scored for Melville 95 seconds into the game. But 64 seconds after Steinke’s goal, Kade McMillen scored for Estevan to tie the game, and 30 seconds later, Eddie Gallagher tallied to give the Bruins the lead.

Isaiah Thomas would score twice before the period was up, and Tyler Savage and Devon Cyr also scored to give Estevan a 6-1 lead through 20 minutes.

Cyr added two more in the second, while Kolton Leslie and Griffin Asham-Moroz also scored in the middle frame to give Estevan a 10-1. Cyr’s third goal was the final Bruin marker, and it came 11:02 into the middle frame.

Luke Nkwarna scored for Melville before the period was finished.

Neither team scored in the third period.

Keenan Rancier stopped 36 of the 38 shots he faced.

The last time the Bruins scored 10 in a game was January 2016 against the Humboldt Broncos.
